dc.description.transcriptionDublin, Tex. R. 4 11-26-43 Mr K. Deakins Ft. Worth, Texas. Dear Mr Deakins You have no idea how thankful I was to get your letter today, about our Dear Son. We have gotten two telegrams from the war department tellins us about the capture of Doyle, they also gave us his address but we've have no letters from Him, we've worried so much & have looked every day for a letter for a month telling me if He was alright I've written Him lots & lots of letters & know it will be a relief to Him to hear from home. (?) Mr. Carter get to send His son food & clothing? Doyle has been over sea for eighteen months & been in many battles. That's what hurts me so we had thought maybe He would get to come home for a little rest by Xmas & then to think He got captured. I prayed everyday for the last week that I would get some word by Thanksgiving, & you were trying every way to get me word. God does hear & answer prayers God works in mysterous ways, His wonders to perform, it might be His way of proticting Our Dear Boy (our only boy.) & wonder if you would put a little sketch of His life in your paper and also His picture if so I'll gladly send it in to you thanking you so very much for your kindness I remain Respectuly yours Mrs. A. A. Yardley
